    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at AbbVie (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Was flown in the night before. It was a half day interview starting at 8 and wrapping up at 12:30. The team was EXTREMELY friendly. I started talking to them and knew I would have loved working with them. They were extremely insightful and intelligent, and at the same time, kind and easy to talk to. At the end of the day, it felt like a stimulating discussion on my field rather than an interview process.

    Logistics Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at AbbVie.

    Interview

    Very well organized process. They send you an email with the exact date and time of the interview well in advance. No phone interview, all meetings were in person with the hiring manager and HR Specialist. In general, the questions are pretty standard and not difficult at all. If you open a guide book how to behave on an interview you will find everything there. No surprises, no tricky questions, professional and relaxed atmosphere, as far as it could be for a job interview. I would highly recommend to include technical test for the skills requested for the job just to make sure the candidate and the hiring manager are at the same page (i.e. what is advanced Excel skill, etc.)
